Los Angeles, CA (September 8, 2020)
Twenty years ago, conspiracy theories, misinformation campaigns, censorship, and a deadly virus infecting the world were all part of the thrilling plotlines from the LEFT BEHIND movies produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller book series of the same name.

It’s really happening, exactly as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.”

Gateway Southern Gospel group GloryWay Quartet recently learned that its latest radio single, “Nobody” has debuted at #11 in the Top 20 New Releases to radio on the SGN Scoops national chart. The single has caught on across the nation and has quickly become a hit for the Ohio based group. It is the first release from their new album, God You’re Amazing.

Their vocals are as strong as any group on the road and fans just love these guys,” stated Matt Felts, Gateway Management.

The Collingsworth Family Shares ‘Worship from Home’

Nashville, TN (September 8, 2020)
When The Collingsworth Family gathered in their living room for a Facebook Live concert event, nobody knew just how special that time would be. What started from a heart to raise money for a worthy organization exceeded expectations and culminated in a powerful worship service. Now, they get to share that worship experience with you again. Worship from Home is an intimate, around-the-piano experience with one of America’s favorite Southern Gospel vocal groups.

On March 29, 2020, The Collingsworth Family decided to livestream a concert from their home to benefit Samaritan’s Purse. Just a few days prior, they felt the Lord compelling them to do an online fundraiser and had no idea how far reaching their efforts would be. The day of the event, they made a last-minute decision to record it for archival purposes. The songs they shared were encouraging and calming, something fans so desperately needed, as many states were going into government-imposed lockdowns that very week. Over 600,000 people viewed the online event, and more than $230,000.00 was raised for Samaritan’s Purse, which had just sent a relief team into New York City, the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic at that time.

The Collingsworth Family was thrilled to see what God had done with their act of obedience. Phil Collingsworth, Sr. shares, “When the cameras began to roll and we watched as our crew started the countdown clock to the moment we went live, we had no way of knowing what God had in store for us that evening. We watched as the number of views topped 200,000 and God’s people so generously gave to Samaritan’s Purse, but we didn’t have a clue what that would set in motion!”

Fans flooded their office with requests for CDs and DVDs of the event. Phil continues, “God knew the event would turn into a recording and now be released nationally. That is the God we serve; One who sees beyond what we can see.”

In addition to a newly penned song by Kim Collingsworth, “Joy Is Not Cancelled,” the song selections include hymns and classic songs of the faith they had never previously recorded. Distributed exclusively by Sony/Provident, Worship From Home is available now at digital and retail outlets worldwide and is sure to be an uplifting addition to your CD & DVD collections.

Jamgochian’s first single “All Things For My Good” debuted on Friday from her forthcoming album All Things set to release on October 2, 2020.

“I’ve been a huge fan of Jaime’s since the first time I saw her at a label showcase in 2004,” says Dusty Wells, Director of Label Relations for NDC. “It’s exciting to be able to work with someone who’s heart is in the right place: pointing people to Christ through worship. This new project for Jaime does just that, and New Day gets to take it to the Christian marketplace for both physical and digital formats. I now get to call her a friend, and personally am thrilled to be working alongside her.”

The Boston native found Jesus while studying at Berklee College of Music when she was 21 years of age. Jamgochian led worship at a Seattle-based church for several years following her tenure at Berklee where she signed her first record deal. Since then, the worship singer has moved to Nashville and continues to travel the world sharing the gospel.

“I am so excited for this new season of music,” says Jamgochian. “After overcoming some major health challenges last year, I wasn’t sure if recording music was in the cards for me ever again. But God is so good, and I pray that this album speaks to the hearts and souls of many.”

Jamgochian has also teamed up with Artist Resource Services, a subsidiary of NDC, to fulfill marketing efforts for her upcoming album, All Things.

Along with her distribution agreement, Jamgochian also signed a publishing deal with Curb/Word Publishing and business management agreement with Watershed Music Group.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound to Premiere Friday Night Sing Sep 11

Nashville, TN (September 2, 2020)
GRAMMY®-nominated, Dove Award-winning StowTown Records flagship artist Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is set to premiere a new streaming series, Friday Night Sing, beginning September 11 at 7:00 pm ET. A unique mix of music, memories and special guests, the weekly half-hour show will be free to view on the group’s website, as well as via YouTube and Facebook.

“Like everyone else, when much of the U.S. shut down at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I would wake up each morning with uncertainty and a certain amount of fear,” Haase recalls. “After a few weeks of that I said, ‘Enough! What can I do to help?’ EHSS soon began singing together online, each of us performing from our individual living rooms. That weekly effort caught on so well and the idea for ‘Friday Night Sing’ was born. Now, this series is our gift to the body of Christ in these uncertain times.”

With a new episode debuting each Friday for 16 weeks, the show will be anchored by socially-distanced performances of familiar favorites from Ernie Haase & Signature Sound. In addition, a special guest will be featured on every show, with upcoming appearances slated to include Christian music patriarch Bill Gaither; Dr. Dave Zanotti, president and CEO of the American Policy Roundtable and co-host of the popular radio broadcast The Public Square; GRAMMY®-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio; GRAMMY®-nominated trio the Booth Brothers; and Broadway actor and singer J. Mark McVey, among many others.

“Friday Night Sing” episodes will also be highlighted by never-before-seen footage of Haase’s beloved father-in-law, the late George Younce, along with archived performances from the Cathedral Quartet during Haase’s tenure with the iconic group.

“We know Christ is the center of all things and on the ‘Friday Night Sing’ we are going to show the world what that looks like,” Haase adds of the show’s purpose. “Grace, hope, love, liberty, friendship and all good things have a face, and it is the eternal Christ Jesus our Lord. THAT’S WHY WE SING!”

Since its formation in 2003, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound has become one of the most celebrated quartets in Southern Gospel history. The GRAMMY®-nominated, multi Dove Award-winning group is comprised of Ernie Haase (tenor), Devin McGlamery (lead), Dustin Doyle (baritone) and Paul Harkey (bass). A hitmaker at Southern Gospel radio, EHSS has also earned multiple Gold and Platinum DVD certifications and was recently nominated for a 2020 Dove Award for Southern Gospel Artist of the Year.

Nashville, TN (September 2, 2020)
Following the critically-acclaimed Gaither Music Group Brotherly Love CD digital release from Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers and Ben Isaacs, the country, bluegrass, gospel dream team returns with the Brotherly Love DVD and TV special. Physical copies of the DVD and CD, released digitally May 29, will be released on Sept. 4, while the TV special, hosted by Rory Feek, will premiere tonight on Heartland at 7 p.m. CT and Sept. 3 on RFD-TV at 5:30 p.m. CT.

Fans can also hear stories behind the songs on Brotherly Love with the group’s Pandora Story.

Each member of Fortune/Walker/Rogers/Isaacs brings their own wealth of experience to Brotherly Love, creating an intriguing combination of styles and influences. The result is a diverse collection that spotlights some of the best-loved gems on America’s musical landscape. Walker takes lead on the mournful Hank Williams Sr. classic “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Fortune’s pristine tenor shines on the Vince Gill hit “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” Rogers delivers a spirited take on the O Brother, Where Art Thou hit “Man of Constant Sorrow;” and Isaacs’ warm voice revives the Don Williams’ hit “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good.”

Isaacs, a DOVE Award-winning producer who has performed with his mother and sisters for years as the GRAMMY-nominated group The Isaacs and shepherded many of the top names in the industry, produced Brotherly Love. Fortune rose to fame as a member of the Statler Brothers and penned some of their biggest hits (“Elizabeth,” “Too Much on My Heart”) before forging a successful solo career when the quartet retired. Walker is a DOVE Award-winning artist with a strong following in country, gospel and bluegrass. Formerly with the legendary Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and currently on the road with Craig Morgan, Rogers is one of the most highly respected musicians in bluegrass music.

The four friends shared their close-knit blends with country music singer/songwriter/storyteller Rory Feek, who hosted the LIVE video recording in his concert barn in Columbia, Tenn. The DVD and TV special capture the intimate evening of song and storytelling, filmed in-the-round, that features an introduction by Bill Gaither and behind-the-scenes interviews with Feek and the group members, who discuss the music they chose for the performance and share how these songs have touched their lives. “The songs chosen for the record reflect their crossover appeal to bluegrass, country, and gospel fans, presented in an acoustic setting with assistance from top Nashville super pickers (Bluegrass Today).” Those songs include the title track, “Brotherly Love,” a country hit for the late Keith Whitley and Earl Thomas Conley; the Statler Brothers’ classic “Class of ’57;” and Roy Orbison’s “Crying” as well as such gospel standards as “The Lighthouse,” “Daddy Sang Bass” and “Where No One Stands Alone.” The Brotherly Love TV special is also set to air on networks including PBS, TBN, GaitherTV, CTN, TCT and Proclaim Broadcasting. In Canada, it will air on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.
